25 Random Acts of Kindness
With December now here and the countdown till Christmas ready to begin, I wanted to create my very own 25 day challenge. I thought it would be a great idea to end 2016 with a bang by doing 25 random Acts of kindness in 25 days. I brainstormed some ideas and came up with the list below.
To make things a tad bit more fun, I will be awarding four $25 Visa Gift Cards to 4 random people who document any of the listed acts using hashtag #GWJ25ActsofKindness. Be sure to make your profiles public on December 25th so I don't miss your entry. If you'd like to log you acts of kindness by day, please feel free to download this free template by clicking here.
Don's forget to share photos of your journey by using #GWJ25ActsofKindness. Please comment in this blog post if you plan to participate!
